We know all too well that classroom and laboratory instruction at UW-Madison had to change dramatically and suddenly in Spring 2020. Have you wondered how thousands of instructors suddenly pivoted to online teaching and what instruction at the university looks like in Spring 2021?

Here’s your chance to go behind the scenes in a fascinating sample of different types of courses. 

Join us for a lively panel discussion featuring faculty and academic staff who are now much more experienced teaching online. These outstanding teachers come from a range of disciplines across campus--in the sciences, arts, humanities, and social sciences. They will describe how they and their colleagues have been teaching online, what’s going well and what’s not, and how their teaching and their students’ learning may change long term even as on-campus instruction resumes. An outstanding undergraduate will also join us to share a student’s perspective. After brief, informal presentations by all of the speakers, there will be plenty of time for questions from the audience.

Panelists include:

  • Haania Khan, 3rd-Year Undergraduate Student Majoring in Biochemistry and Religious Studies (not pictured)

Alicia Lee, Assistant Professor of Clarinet, Mead Witter School of Music

Dianna Murphy,  Director of the Language Institute and Co-Director of the Russian Flagship Program

John Zumbrunnen, Professor, Department of Political Science, Faculty Affiliate in Integrated Liberal Studies, and Vice Provost for Teaching and Learning

Janet Batzli, Distinguished Faculty Associate and Interim Director of the Biocore Program

If you have preliminary questions for the speakers, please send to Program Coordinators Bruno Browning at and Brad Hughes at by Friday, March 12.
